Product Description

Amazon.ca

By the release of this landmark eighth album, Iron Maiden had settled into what's generally considered their classic lineup. With Bruce Dickinson, Dave Murray, Adrian Smith, and Nicko McBrain operating at the very peak of their form, bassist Steve Harris, the band's mastermind and main songwriter, decided to extend the Maiden remit yet further by unveiling their very first concept work. Contemporary critics scoffed in the face of such a grandiose gesture, but Seventh Son of a Seventh Son spawned no less than four British hit singles and remains an indomitable highlight of the Maiden's illustrious career. From the strident commercial metal of "Can I Play with Madness" through the keyboard-enhanced epic bombast of the title track to the fretboard intricacies and chest-beating machismo of "Only the Good Die Young," Seventh Son finds Iron Maiden at their most assured and creative. This is a spectacular example of 22-carat heavy metal. --Ian Fortnam

Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
One of my favorite Iron Maiden albums, grew up listening to this. I am always wary of picture vinyl LP's as they can sometimes introduce artifacts into the surface that make it sound old (pops and clicks). This one at the first track 'Moonchild' had a lot of imperfections which caused it to have pops and clicks, but they stopped about a 3rd into the first song. Picture LP's are awesome, but you have to expect issues sometimes. I have many versions of these, these are the best so far.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some of their best art in my opinion May 8 2013
By RIP
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
Gathering together all 8 or the released picture disc vinyl commemorating the 2013 UK tour. Now I can finally have a completed collection of these fabulous pieces of art work on both the large album covers and the printed art on the vinyl itself. Great item for any Iron Maiden fan. Unfortunately I do not have a record player to play these at this time and enjoy their original sound as was intended at this time.

This album and Somewhere In Time were some of their last great works with such amazing artwork that went with it. I like their older stuff as well but I have to admit these were two of my favorite albums they did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seventh album is first on the list July 26 2004
Format:Audio CD
Iron Maiden's first and only one true concept album. Every song is there for a reason and the album couldn't stand the loss of one of them. It's just one piece from the very beginning until the very end.
1-Moonchild : Great intro with keyboards. It just prepares you for the excellence. 10/10
2-Infinite dreams : In the same vein as Revelations. Brilliant. 10/10
3-Can I play with madness : The commercial song of the album. But still has its place on a "serious" album. Catchy, very 80's sounding but is still good today. 9/10
4-The evil that men do : A great rocker and a great chorus. 9/10
5-7th son of a 7th son : A 10 minute long epic that sums all of the best things in this album (and in Maiden). A masterpiece very close to Rime of the ancient mariner, great instrumental break. 10/10
6-The prophecy : A very heavy and dark chorus with great voices by Bruce and a beautiful acoustic outro. 9/10
7-The clairvoyant : The other "commercial" song of the album. Great guitar work during the verses. Catchy. 9/10
8-Only the good die young : Closes the album in a great way, as good as Moonchild did open it. 9/10
Individually not the strongest album. But you have to look at the ensemble to see how genius this is. The ultimate Iron Maiden album. The ultimate heavy metal album. The ultimate album. This is the one I would like to be buried with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Un must Nov. 18 2003
Format:Audio CD
La première cassette que j'ai achetée, je devais avoir 12 ans. C'est une oeuvre maîtresse. La qualité et l'effervescence qui ressort en écoutant cet album vous fera apprécier encore plus Iron Maiden. Je vous le conseil, c'est un bijoux de Heavy Metal.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Masterpiece Nov. 28 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is the all time classic Maiden Album. Even the artwork is my favourite out of all their albums. The full spectrum of music from driving metal to entrancing harmonies create an incedible listening atmosphere. The entire band's performance is 5 star with the MVP being shared by Bruce and Nicko.

5.0 out of 5 stars Progressive masterpiece Aug. 22 2003
Format:Audio CD
[Before you start reading this review, I want to apologize for making it so long. I had a lot to say, and there was no short way to do it.]
Iron Maiden has always been a band that was willing to experiment with new styles, even if it meant risking their entire fan base. 1986's Somewhere In Time proved this beautifully - but the experimental/progressive sound succeeded in making them more popular than ever! Before the band fell down to earth, they would shell out one more progressive masterpiece - 1988's Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son. This would be the last Maiden album for twelve years to feature the classic Dickinson/Smith/Murray/McBrain/Harris line-up (Smith left after this album.) Read on for track comments, as well as my comments on the remaster series.
Moonchild - An excellent melodic rocker, they simply could not have started the album better.
Infinite Dreams - This one starts slow and melodic, but soon enough it becomes a lengthy (and damn good) instrumental session. Another good track.
Can I Play With Madness - This is the band's most overrated song, period (Running Free is second), but it's still very good. It's a solid melodic rocker with the band in tip top shape. Need I Say More?
The Evil That Men Do - An excellent rocker that captures the band in its prime. It's no wonder it's become a fan favorite!
Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son - The title track of the album often goes unappreciated for some unknown reason. Why? This is quite possibly the best song on the album!
The Prophecy - Possibly the weakest track here, but also the most underrated. The chorus to this one must be heard to be appreciated.
The Clairvoyant - Another fan favorite. Once again, the band serves up a winner. I don't think anything else needs to be said about this one.

By Tommy Sixx Morais TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
After experimenting with synthetizers on 1986's "Somewhere In Time" a progressive album,Iron Maiden releases the last of their classic albums with "Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son" and goes even further in the progressive sound with this release.They were influenced by Rush on this one borrowing much of the progressive rock sound,and they fused it witth Heavy Metal beautifully.SSOASS is also a concept album based on Orson Scott Card's "Seventh Son" book,wich was released in 1987 since then the book has gotten many sequels and it takes much of the same story as the book and put them into their song lyrics and this is definatly an intellectual album,Steve Harris really chose a great story and made converted it into an album that can now be considered as some of his best work.Each song on the album tells a part of the story about a child born with clairvoyant powers and if you can understand what happens in each song you will be able to enjoy this album better.This is sadly the last of the classic lineup's 4 albums,four incredible albums that you have to get.

The songs on the album are generally great and some of them really stand out here is the songs and the story behind them that might not know about.First up is the incredible opener "Moonchild" is about the devil plaguing the seventh son's mother its a song with a chorus that will get stuck in your head and a fast tempo.Next is "Infinite Dreams" is about dreams and imagination that the father of the seventh son has,its slower nearly ballad song filled with tempo changes,a song that i didn't like at first but i have growned to love so much that its one of my favourite song on the album.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not really as good as Somewhere In Time
This album is OK in my book, but some songs lack the energy used in all past Iron Maiden albums. Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son has some great songs but lacks energy and power. Read more

There was a bit of doubt in my mind when buying this, but seeming as though I'm a huge Maiden fan, I bought it over a Morbid Angel cd I was looking at on the same day. Read more
